Read full description of the books:
Damn I love these books. I adore Paddy Meehan! She is one of the best series protagonists I’ve come across in years. In her era (late 80s) and her particularly conservative religious community, women don’t work – they marry. So here’s Paddy, charging full speed ahead into the “unnatural” life of a professional, unmarried woman. She’s tough but insecure. Hot-headed, yet kind. And she’s totally badass.
No plot summary for this book but suffice it to say that she gives as good as she gets. She screws up and falls down and she gets right back up again.
”The smiled at each other, these two working women, both keeping jobs from needy men, betraying nature by escaping the kitchen sink, these two women who were out in the world, active not passive, subjects not objects.”
